In the middle of October, Ukrainian Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk threatened to file a lawsuit against Russia, if Moscow does not agree to restructure the Ukrainian debt and partially write it off.
Finance Minister Anton Siluanov noted that Russia and Ukraine could not come to an agreement on the restructuring of Ukraine's $3 billion sovereign debt, noting that Russia would demand the full repayment of Ukraine's Eurobonds by December.
If the fund tries to change the rules, it would demonstrate that the IMF was "a political tool of the US government" and make other countries lose their trust in the institution, the newspaper wrote.
The author also mentioned that this move would accelerate the implementation of Beijing’s and Moscow’s plans to further develop projects as an alternative to those led by the US.
